This week we have done extensive work in reading and writing with Island of the Blue Dolphins. Our entire class has searched diligently to identify character traits, evidence, and themes throughout the story. One of those very important themes has been leadership.
I have watched one student refine his leadership skills - stepping up when someone needs a hand, being polite to others, and always working for improvement. COLIN, your dedication to hard work, cooperation, and mindfulness is certainly noticed. In just a few months, I have seen you mature tremendously and I am so proud of the young man you're becoming. Our entire community will continue to support your growth. Let's congratulate our new Student of the Week, COLIN!
